The official “general use” flashlights of the Savannah Arsenal Project.
These Rayovac “Indestructible” LED flashlights are tier-one gear. They have an aluminum body and rubber coating surrounding the bezel and the end cap. No matter how you drop them, they will land on a rubber part.
We keep one of these flashlights in each bedside table, one on the workbench, one in my toolbox, and one in each vehicle.
The ONLY reason that I would not recommend this light as a “tactical” light is that it alternates between its 300 Lumen bright setting, then off, and then its 70 Lumen “energy saving” setting. If there was a way to make it only turn on with the bright setting then I would have no problem recommending this light for more “tactical” purposes.
- Uses two AA batteries (think easy procurement — Wal-Mart, drug store, etc).
- 300 Lumens for ∼2 hours on bright mode.
- 70 Lumens for ∼12 hours on energy saving mode.
- 30″ drop tested.
- Sold at Home Depot for approximately $15, or order on Amazon HERE.
I’ve often wondered how to use a flashlight that cycles through the various modes, i.e. bright/dim/strobe, as a tactical light. I think that your post here sums it up best…. you really shouldn’t.
Thanks for the info.
